Our Autumn Meeting, the last event of the season took place at Chigwell Golf Club in mid September. A very popular meeting with the past and present Lady Captains with 78 ladies from 36 clubs across the County playing on the day in the drawn 4BBB competition.
The ladies teed off from 12 noon in warm and overcast conditions. As the day went on the grey clouds gathered, the wind got up and eventually the rain came down. Nevertheless the ladies enjoyed the course although some found the greens tricky to master and the numerous bunkers difficult to avoid. At the end of the day the ladies were treated to a delicious cold buffet. Our thanks to Chigwell Golf Club for hosting the event and to all the staff on the day for looking after our every need. Thanks also to Kate Gadsby Lady Captain of Chigwell for joining us for the day and to Jo Davies our Vice President for coming in the afternoon to take charge of the results and present the prizes with Kate.
As is often the case, the prizes were fiercely contested with 4 pairs on 39 points. 6th Caroline Fields (Braintree) & Jenny Luke (Mardyke Valley), 5th Sandra Griggs (Maylands) & Christine Berry (Belfairs), 4th June Morgan (Langdon Hills) & Roma Raymond (Five Lakes) 3rd Brenda Young (Braintree) & Pat Vincent (Chelmsford). However 2 pairs excelled and in second place with 41 points were Pauline Nash (Royal Epping) & Margaret Oliver (Orsett). But the clear winners lifting the Bradban Trophy with a fantastic score of 45 points were Lynne Southgate (The Burstead) and Carol Berry (Garon Park).
It was great to see so many ladies in there pink attire out on the course, a great way to end the season.
We are in the process of finalising our programme of events for 2020, details should be on our website before Christmas and we look forward to seeing our existing members and some new ones too next season.
